The Late Mesolithic Landscape
The Early Atlantic was a period of higher temperatures and rainfall than the preceding Boreal. Immigration of a variety of deciduous trees and other plants proceeded during this time and a mosaic of vegetational communities continued to develop. The natural landscape became increasingly differentiated into various relatively stable patches in different topographic and edaphic contexts. Vegetational density was also generally increasing.
